I have taught and directed for 30 years in NY and DC. From lesson 1, students engage with a dynamic approach to acting through Meisner-based improv. During the 1st 12 weeks, we go from basic truthful acting to dynamic scene work, followed by 12 weeks of in-depth scene study, then extensive character training and in-depth film and audition technique. My students are successful in film, theater, commercials and TV in DC, NY and LA.

Robert is super easy to talk to and he has great ideas. He leads with passion, curiosity and understanding and opened new worlds to me. Although I was a terrible student, Robert made me realize how much potential I have and now I'm exploring many new things on my own. I'm very tankful!

Theater Acting is endless, and I will be able to answer any of your questions and guide you down the path of success for the theater life. After my showcase, I did not have representation, and within 2 years, I had performed in 8 plays in NYC and getting reviewed by some of the top Off-Broadway circuits. I will help YOU self-succeed.

Amelia was great. She provided excellent instruction, adapted to my style of learning and gave me a targeted plan to help me improve my acting skills throughout the course of my lessons. As a beginner, I couldn't have asked for a better teacher for my introduction to the world of acting.

"Carissa is my go-to coach whenever I need to prep for auditions. She has an in-depth knowledge of text analysis, so she always helps me understand the most important moments in scenes/monologues and pushes me to make solid, stong choices so I can nail them in the audition room and walk out feeling confident. She is very patient, friendly, knowledgeable, and a pleasure to work with/ learn from. Highly recommend her!"

She diligently follows up each lesson with a complete recap of topics as well as helpful exercises to prepare for the next lesson. At the initial lesson Erin immediately discerned several basic voice characteristics on which I could work. I have complete trust in her and unreservedly recommend Erin to anyone wishing to improve their speaking voice."

"Jeremy Kruse is a working actor and an excellent coach who showed me how fun and rewarding a career in film and television could be. Being a student of Jeremy's for almost two whole years, I looked to him as both a mentor and a friend. He taught everything from breaking down a script to being typecast for a role; even going as far to recreate the physical conditions of an audition space. Since departing from the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute, he's been supportive of my own endeavors as a rising actor, both putting me in touch with a voiceover coach and encouraging me to take up improv at the Upright Citizens Brigade. I began working with Jeremy my first year of highschool and have witnessed firsthand how well his contagious enthusiasm and cultivated professionalism influences his pupils, no matter their age or level of experience. Now four years later, I can say with confidence that were it not for Jeremy Kruse and my class with him every Saturday for 80 weeks, I wouldn't be as devoted as I am today to pursuing acting as a career."

Struggling to find that perfect audition monologue? It can take some time, so be prepared to be patient! Read on as Courtney P., one of our acting teachers in the Orlando area, offers her advice: Let's face it, most actors HATE monologues. They are tedious, and most of the time, it's ridiculously hard to find the right one.
